, they appeared arrogant and domineering. they felt that protection of their founding goddess, athena, had given them a special status, celebrated in a procession to honor the goddess. today, the parthenon is admired for the harmony of its architecture and the refinement of its friezes, but to the ancient athenians, it was admired for something rather different-- what lay inside the temple. that was a statue of athena nearly 40 feet high. that's only 5 feet below the ceiling. a statue armed, covered with gold in all its dress from head to foot, the skin ivory, with monsters on its helmet and a great serpent by its side. to us, that would seem garish, grandiose, and unrestrained, but that was the core of the building. and if you put yourself in the position of an ancient athenian, perhaps coming from the panathenaic procession in the dazzling light of an attic august and then going inside that building, we can imagine what it felt like to see that statue. as the eyes became accustomed to the gloom and saw the glittering gold, the jeweled eyes reflected in the pool below, the effect must have been

cuts coming to the united states postal service. athena jones joins me. good morning. >> the packaging will continue, that's one area seen growth in recent years. people are now using e-mail to stay in touch, using the internet to pay bills and so the postal service has seen big declines in money that's coming in, so they defaulted on several loans last year, they exhausted a $15 billion line of credit from the treasury and so this is all part of cost-cutting measures to try to help put them back on track. they've already closed offices, they consolidated distribution centers, they've cut hours at offices. we understand that this move could save them around a couple billion dollars a year but of course we're going to be waiting for more details in the announcement later this morning and potentially having them outline several more measures they could be taking. one big issue that is unclear, how they're going to go about doing this. the postal service said in the past they need congressional approval to stop first class delivery on saturdays and so we don't yet know how they're going t
this. athena jones joins me from washington. and, athena, the post office, they're making this decision without congress and the approval there. is it legal? >> that's the big question we're all asking during the press conference and afterwards. the postal service says they believe the language and the current budget bill gives them the room to do this. of course, that's a matter of some debate. it raises questions like if you could do this before, why didn't you do it before if you're in such dire financial straits, especially since the savings wouldn't come until august. this seems to be a way to try to put pressure on congress to make some big changes to the limits and the requirements they put on the postal service. chief among them, 2006 bill that requires them to prefund health care benefits for future retirees to the tune of billions of dollars a year. they say this has put a lot of pressure on the postal service's bottom line that in addition to people using the internet to stay in touch and pay their bills. >> on the bottom line point, we know that ending saturday deliveries is
money here. athena jones is joining us from washington. and you know, i mean a lot of people look at this and say there is a lot of waste already, that a company, a private business would have gone out of business a long time ago. >> reporter: exactly. that's what the postal service is arguing. they believe that current language and current legislation will allow them to do this. the big question is whether that is the case. they said up until now they need congressional approval to make these changes. because it's a quasi independent service. but it requires some help from the government. so the congress passed a law in 2006, that required the postal service to prefund health care benefits for future retirees, this is the kind of requirement most companies don't have to deal with. as a result they lost all of this money. they had defaulted on a total of $11 billion in loans to the u.s. treasury last year. they exhausted a line of credit from the u.s. treasury. and so they are really in bad shape. they believe this will help them get back on track. but of course, congress so far h
's inauguration. athena jones is live in chicago with the story. we've said this is so tragic, pen pendleton had no gang affiliation and was not the intended target. correct? >> reporter: that's right, martin. she was a bystander, standing with her friends in a structure in a park not far from her school. that's one of the things that's so outrageous. hadiya pendleton had spoken out against people joining gangs. urged her friends to stay on the straight and narrow and not get involved with gangs. this is something that the vice president, vice president biden brought up about pendleton just a few days ago when he was speaking to house democrats. and it's something that makes it such a tragic situation that's too commanin cities like chicago and -- too common in cities like chicago and around the country. it's helped focus the nation's attention, not just people in chicago but the nation, people in washington. that's why the first lady will be coming to the funeral service today along with senior adviser valerie jarrett and education secretary arnie dunken and mayor rahm emanuel. we just saw reve
straight ahead. >>> but first, let's talk about those spending cuts, $85 billion worth. athena jones joining us from the north lawn of the white house. the deadline is friday. these cut does affect all of us in one way or another, actually, we are back inside now. tell us how. >> reporter: well, you know, we are hearing about all kinds of bad effects if these cut goes into affect. 75,000 kids could lose access to head start. low-income senior citizens could lose food aid. talking about longer lines at airport security, delays, air traffic controllers, you see cuts there and also another example is food inspections there will be less money available to make sure our products like meat are safe to eat. everyone agrees these cuts, across-the-board cuts are a bad idea, people believe they should, both sides should be able to come together and agree on targeted cuts, really look what the needs to be cut. let's listen to what missouri democrat claire mccaskill said about this morning. >> why is it that we can't come to the table and agree what cuts need to happen? that's what we should be
at all. so there is only 4% of the doctors on athena net. the idea we should stop shooting for 30% growth because we only got 88% of the goal in one year is ridiculous to me and i'm glad to say all 2400 people and six offices at the party last night fully, fully agreed and hadn't even had that many cocktails at the time. so the year is starting well. the energy is high. we're going to keep trying to grow this thing 30% a year in the nation is connected and it eight unit close yet. ashley: jonathan, your energy is high, there is no doubt about that you're a cloud based service. does the new health care law impact you at all postively or negatively? >> yeah it affects us postively and negatively amazingly. there is kind of one rule maker crowding out all the other rule makers in the form of uncle sam. but, and that means there is less creativity and less dynamism. it does mean there is an easy benchmark to compare yourself against. so meaningful use is the order of the day. did you attain federal meaningful use status. here we are in year two of this federal program and we've got over 95% o
